Lt. Gov. talks healthcare with students, small business owners

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest was in the east Thursday.
     
He stopped by Pitt Community College's Small Business Center to talk with students and small business owners.
     
Topics of conversation ran the gamut from taxation to regulations to access to capital and healthcare.

"You know, there's still a lot of concerns out there,” said Lt. Gov. Dan Forest. “The economy's not good and people are really struggling to make ends meet and small business owners, if they have any one main concern, it's healthcare right now. They're very concerned about what's going on with healthcare and how they're going to foot the bill come Jan. 1 when Obamacare goes into effect."

Forest says he plans to spend the next few months visiting other communities in the state to listen to constituent concerns.
